Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits? 

A sick visit is an appointment at Prime Physicians that focuses on your current illness or injury. Your provider’s primary goal during sick visits is to quickly and accurately diagnose the cause of your symptoms, then provide the immediate treatment you need to heal and feel better. 

Depending on your symptoms and the reason for sick visits, you may be able to get the care you need through a virtual appointment rather than going into the office. 

If you have any questions about scheduling sick visits, call Prime Physicians. The team can ask a few questions, quickly learn about your symptoms, and determine if you need an in-person or telemedicine visit.

Which conditions do sick visits treat?

Sick visits are centered on addressing a current set of symptoms. Unlike routine physical exams, which seek to assess your overall health and wellness, sick visits focus on the issues. Due to the unpredictable nature of illness, sick visits are booked without much advance notice.

The many different illnesses that need prompt treatment and can be addressed during sick visits include:

  • Flu
  • Earaches
  • Common cold
  • COVID-19
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Concussions
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sore throat (strep throat)
  • Skin conditions
  • Asthma flare-ups
  • Allergies and allergy testing
  • Fevers
  • Cough
  • Abdominal Pain

Prime Physicians can also take care of minor injuries and other issues during sick visits, such as cuts, sprains, and falls.

Are sick visits the same as emergency care?

Sick visits and urgent care are not emergency care. Urgent care centers are same-day clinics that can handle various medical problems that must be addressed promptly.

Emergency care is needed for conditions that threaten your health or life. Your local emergency room can provide the higher level of care you may need, such as surgery or advanced diagnostic imaging.

Go to the ER or call 911 for the following conditions:

  • Heavy bleeding that doesn’t stop
  • Sudden or severe abdominal pain
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Severe traumatic brain injury
  • Fractures
  • Suspected or known poisoning

Heart attack symptoms include difficulty breathing, dizziness, chest pressure or pain, severe heartburn, and pain in your arms, back, or jaw. Difficulty speaking, weakness in one arm, or numbness on one side of the face are signs of a stroke.

In the event of an emergency, call 911. Emergency medical technicians can start immediate treatment, which often makes the difference between life and death, especially for traumatic brain injuries, severe bleeding, strokes, and heart attacks.

If you are in need of sick visits, call Prime Physicians to schedule, or request one online now.
